Bill Bradford shared a quote
Joining Children on the Spiritual Journey by Catherine Stonehouse
“We need not fear that children with creative imaginations will make God into nothing more than their other fantasies. The unseen God is real to children.”
Catherine Stonehouse
Bill Bradford shared a quote
Joining Children on the Spiritual Journey by Catherine Stonehouse
“Yes, our children must one day make the faith their own and give themselves to God, but God graciously draws them toward that day. Although God respects our freedom of choice and our children may reject grace, I believe their choice is influenced toward God when we give them to God, trust them to grace, and open ourselves to reflect God’s love.”
Catherine Stonehouse
Bill Bradford shared a quote
Myth Became Fact by Brian Godawa
“For us to demand that the Biblical text be scientifically or historically “accurate” as we define those terms is not a high view of Scripture, it is a low view of Scripture. It is in fact imposing our own prejudices upon the text by refusing to understand it within its context. This is called cultural imperialism and it is the height of hubris, or human pride.”

“Stories and their meaning will be learned best by children if they actively experience them.”
Catherine Stonehouse, Joining Children on the Spiritual Journey: Nurturing a Life of Faith

Scot McKnight
“Sometimes in our zeal to “apply” a text, we fail to read the text in its context. And more often than we may all care to admit, our frustrations over how to apply a text can be completely resolved with a more accurate interpretation.”
Scot McKnight, Sermon on the Mount

“Yes, our children must one day make the faith their own and give themselves to God, but God graciously draws them toward that day. Although God respects our freedom of choice and our children may reject grace, I believe their choice is influenced toward God when we give them to God, trust them to grace, and open ourselves to reflect God’s love.”
Catherine Stonehouse, Joining Children on the Spiritual Journey: Nurturing a Life of Faith

Scot McKnight
“Many in our day climb under the moral shade of Matthew 7:1 to take the supposed high road in saying, “I’m not the judge.” Those who take this supposed high road may be missing the whole point of Jesus’ words: sin is sin, and one cannot follow Jesus and turn a blind eye to sin. What Jesus is calling us to here is not the absence of moral discernment.”
Scot McKnight, Sermon on the Mount

“We need not fear that children with creative imaginations will make God into nothing more than their other fantasies. The unseen God is real to children.”
